Any suggestions on how to build a model train engine with everyday household products? Thanks!

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is a website with a photo of Thomas the Tank Engine. Looking at the square engine, perhaps a match box would serve as the body?

If you wanted a round body, perhaps a can of soup (after you've consumed the soup!)

This next site has ideas for a 7-year old's birthday party, using cereal boxes, cake, etc.
